Since I am 3 1/2 years out from hearing those life changing words, "You have cancer," I didn't think that signing this wall would really be that big of a deal. Boy, was I wrong. On the drive over to the cancer center, my mind was going crazy. To be honest, the only reason I showed up to the signing was I didn't want to disappoint these wonderful women. I tell ya, one wouldn't think that it would be hard to sign your name...but it was...what if I sign my name and "it" comes back? Am I jinxing "it?" Am I really a survivor? It was like looking cancer in the face and saying "I did it!!" Over and over I kept saying these words, "Cancer,You may have taken part of my life....BUT you are not my life!! Kim you can do it!" So, once again, I said a prayer and with God's help faced my fears--joining up with my friends to sign the wall.
OH, I am so glad I didn't give in to my fears and miss this event!
What a special day, with such special women!
Together---we faced the wall!
Individually--we signed our names!!
Together--we are a special group of survivors--supporting, loving and caring for each other and those who join us the journey no one wants to walk.
A great big "I LOVE YOU!!" and special "THANK YOU!!" to my beautiful sisters in Christ!
